From colourPop factory straight to my dorm mailbox I received this lovely collab Colourpop x My little pony collection. I LIVE for the packaging…it’s honestly the cutest packaging I’ve ever seen on a makeup collection. Also it’s worth mentioning this bundle is not sold out yet, so you have the opportunity to buy this same collection.
Included in this bundle: PR tote bag, brush set, sticker sheet, makeup bag, My little Pony Palette ($16), Trickles highlighter ($8) , Starflower highlighter ($8), Flutter Valley Ultra glossy lip ($6) , Dream Castle Ultra glossy lip ($6), PonyLand Ultra glossy lip ($6), Moondancer Ultra matte lip ($6), Lemon Drop Ultra matte lip ($6), Pin wheel Ultra matte lip ($6), Posey super shock shadow ($5), Sunbeam super shock shadow ($5), and Cherries jubilee super shock shadow ($5).
As you can see the packaging is very retro 1990’s my little pony, and very cute. Colourpop always includes hand written thank cards that are adorable as well! But lets talk about quality. Whether you have tried colourpop or not it’s much like any other brand in the sense that some products are phenomenal and some are yawn worthy. One of my biggest disappointments with this collection are the highlighters. I had heard such good things about colourpop highlights but they were quite dull. Starflower (peachy gold highlight) is the only one I get some results out of but it may as well be a shimmer blush. So if you plan to buy the items separately I’d skip out on the highlighters.
I should note this was my first time trying any type of colourpop lip product. The Ultra matte lip products are exactly what they sound like- incredibly drying. The shades are beautiful though. Moondancer is a burgundy shade, Lemon drop is a lovely lavendar shade, and Pin wheel is dark pink. The glosses are all very sparkly, long lasting, and not too sticky. I personally love the glosses the most especially flutter valley (the gold shade). But Lemon drop also has a special place in my heart.
Now comes the lovely eyeshadow palette and super shock shadows. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from the super shock shadows…I figured they’d be powder not creme and that they’d be high pigmented. Instead I was pretty shocked. They are a light creme chromatic type shadow. Essentially the equivalent to a lip topper for your eye lids. I did get quite a few compliments when I wore the Posey super shock shade over a couple pink shades from the palette. My overall thoughts on the palette is that it is worth $16, however the majority of the shades are not nearly as pigmented as other colourpop palettes. In comparison to the “I think I’m in love palette”, the black in this palette is very chalky. If you enjoy pretty, bright colors though and are into the new sunset eyes trend then maybe this isn’t a bad purchase for you. But overall I don’t think this whole bundle was worth $135.
